Gretsch G6120 FTM Player’s Edition Orange, 2016

Gretsch G6120 FTM Player's Edition Orange, 2016

This is a real treat – a Gretsch G6120 FTM Player’s Edition, with a spectacular flame maple body, string-through Bigsby, pinned bridge, and locking tuners! This is a seriously good guitar, and these modern examples are among the best Gretsch has ever produced. Gretsch introduced the 6120 in 1954 and it was an immediate hit, adopted by many of the top players like Chet Atkins and Eddie Cochrane.

❌SOLD❌  Gretsch G6119-1959 Chet Atkins Tennessee Rose, Flagstaff Sunset Red, 2007

Here is a very cool and rather rare Gretsch G6119-1959 Chet Atkins Tennessee Rose, much like a single-pickup Anniversary model with Trestle bracing and zero fret – and in Flagstaff Sunset Red! This is a reproduction of a guitar known to have been built to a total of about one thousand instruments with open F-Holes. At this time, Chet Atkins was working with Gretsch to reduce feedback as volumes continued to rise, and two main approaches were taken.

❌ SOLD ❌ Gretsch G6120-1959LTV Archtop Electric, Orange 2000

❌ SOLD ❌ Gretsch G6120-1959LTV Archtop Electric, Orange 2000

The Gretsch G6120-1959LTV isn’t currently in production, but it represents the specs of the famous 1959 Gretsch Chet Atkins models, with lacquer finish, zero fret, Trestle bracing and TV Jones Classic pickups. Technically, this guitar isn’t a Chet Atkins model, as at time of construction Gretsch had not re-obtained the rights to the Atkins name. Still – the rest is the same. Based on a 16 inch wide, single cutaway body with sides 2.75 inches high.   It was originally built with a bracing system combining a pair of tone bars running the length of the body plus a sound post under the bridge, but in 1959 Gretsch added a ‘Trestle’ bracing system for Chet Atkins,  who was facing the common problem of hollow-body guitars feeding back at ever-increasing stage volumes.
